Jesus- All Encompassing

Jesus: -Real -Relevant -Robust

Just imagine please that all the above is true or has the slightest possibility of being true.

Webster’s new pocket dictionary defines -Real as:
1. actual; true
2. genuine

(I suppose I could also cite the definitions for actual, true and genuine..but bear with me here.)

Webster’s new pocket dictionary defines -Relevant as:
-pertinent

As I see pertinent it means “applicable to a particular matter”

Now look at -Robust:
1. strong and healthy; vigorous
-(of an object) sturdy in construction
-(of a process, system , organization, etc.) able to withstand or overcome adverse conditions
-uncompromising and forceful
2. (of wine or food) strong and rich in flavor or smell.

So, I mean the best of these definitions (not so much the wine or food definition, thank you)

Red Cross on a purple background with the words Jesus: Real, Relevant , Robust to the right of the cross

Jesus is -Real (remember, you are assuming this is true for the moment (if not longer)

– That would mean the Bible is true
– That Jesus died on the cross for our sins and was raised three days later
– That He and the Father are one (John 10:30)
– That He will return
– That there will be a day of judgement that we all will have to show accountability for our actions. (See forgiveness of sins in the Bible {directly related to Jesus})
Ok, we get the real thing, right?

 

Now, -Relevant:

– Jesus is relevant. (Because He is real is He is -Relevant) and/or applicable to a particular matter.
He is applicable to our lives, He is applicable to life (here on earth, and for eternity)
– John 14:6 says: Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth , and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
(pretty straightforward)
– Jesus is relevant today; He is the same yesterday, today and will be tomorrow.
– He is relevant in today’s fast world

Lastly, -Robust

-Jesus is robust.  I think of a robust program mostly (they use robustness regarding computer science)
– In it’s most positive definition- strong and healthy able to withstand or overcome adverse conditions., all encompassing.(covering everything or everyone; comprehensive)
– Do you see God as a Scientist? A Mathematician? A Doctor? A Physicist? A Father?
– Do you see Jesus as a Savior, Redeemer? Miracle Worker? Part of the Holy Trinity?
– Do you see the Holy Spirit as a Comforter? Teacher? Intercessor?

 

I can’t think of anyone, more -Real, -Relevant, -Robust than Christ

God is love. Love is -Real, love is -Relevant, love is -Robust
1John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth now God; for God is love
1John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent His Son to be a propitiation for our sins.
2John 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after His commandments. This is the commandment, that, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

I see Jesus as all-powerful, unstoppable. Full of mercy, truth, hope, love, righteousness, holiness and so much more.- How do you see Him?

Even if there is only a .00000000000000000000000001… chance of Him being true, wouldn’t you want to be a part of something so wonderful?

In His service,

Kari
